For I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the LORD your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.
How simple is this command, yet how difficult do we struggle with fulfilling our promise to God to love Him, obey Him, and do everything He asks of us? Amazing, isn’t it? Can you imagine how many more blessings we are missing out on simply because we can’t follow this command fully?
Our choice to place conditions on our relationship with Him restricts us from having the type of relationship that we need—and ironically that we truly want. We’re walking around sabotaging the beauty and blessings in our lives before they manifest.
Remember what I said yesterday about finding and connecting with that inner child, your lost child. It is that essence that frees you. It is in that mind space that you let go and let God. Without the need to control or constantly question out of doubt.
The Kingdom is inside of you. The peace you long for is already inside of you. God is not removed from you. He is not detached. He is not absent. He is within you and around you. Just reach in, reach out. Embrace Him.
Father, I thank You for Your patience and care as I walk and stumble, frequently, on this path that You have placed before me. I want to obey and keep Your commands, decrees, and laws. I want to honor Your covenant. I want to keep my promises as You keep Yours.
I want to love You fully and unconditionally. I want to do right, live right, and be free in this understanding. I know this can only happen if I follow and obey You fully, completely, and at all times.
Thank You, Father, for understanding my struggle, fear, frustration, and uncertainty. And never leaving my side as I work to be more like Your son— and the child You created me to be. Thank You for my countless blessings, Father. Continue to bless me and enlarge my territory. Amen.
And with that family, I pray that you are blessed, that you see and embrace your blessings, and that you are a blessing to others.
